WINTER: ESSENTIALS

I decided to finally do it. Walking into my local news agency I headed straight for the magazine shelves. It was pure fashion galore (in the stylish magazine form of course). After sorting through my magazines I had accumulated over the past few years, I decided it was time for a change. Post teen vogue […]

Chic and Street OBSESSED: The ultimate Relationship

Okay so here are my current obsessions…. Lately the weather down under (yes, I know I just said that), in Australia has been bleak to say the least. We’ve had our summer and were coming into Winter (I think) but it’s a hard transition (according to Mother Nature). With pouring rain in humid heat for about two weeks straight, the weather is finally dipping it’s toes into the cold season. Now that we’ve had our brief weather report (never trust the news man), let’s take look into the chic and street style. This is definitely what I’m obsessed with right now.

Sunglasses are becoming more than a summer accessory.  Yellow aviators and acne sunnies are in, and those heart shaped glasses from the dollar store/bargain shops are definitely the cheaper alternative if you can’t afford the high end stuff. ALWAYS remember: fashion isn’t about the price, true fashion is the how to express the actual item.  They’re just an statement accessory, so make it count.

Go all out, pair theses with a denim skirt and a cute top and your good to go.. Or just chuck on that super HUGE hoodie and trust me, you’ are gonna be fine and fly.

PROM PROM PROM

I’m not gonna lie, I wanted to spend big bucks on my special prom day BUT you can still be POPPIN if you DROPPIN (did you see what I did there? The play on words? 🙂  okay world carry on) as little as $100 on a dress. The trick is to see what fits your body and how good you feel in it. No honestly, that real cute outfit someone else has got on may not hit the jackpot for you so don’t play yourself and just know that as long as you look and feel good then that is all that matters*****

****I’ve just curated a lil somethin I’m OBSESSED with****

FEMALE FILM FAMINE

FFF BLOG PIC

Okay, the title might be an exaggeration. But honestly, where are our women in film? Where are the strong independent whom take the audience on a 2-3 hour adventure of a turning table of emotions. Women with courage, confidence, intelligence and independence, where can I find you? Sure, argue that Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games, Gravity and Divergent all portray leading women in film, but let’s put that against countless films that constantly screen the protagonist male and the damsel in distress. Let’s have the crazy black friend and the mean girl. Let’s have women sexualised once placed in a leading role.  Ladies and Gentlemen…Where are the real women?
